Creativity is anything anyone can achieve in life.

Hey there,

Today, this blog is all about CREATIVITY !

So many books show Creativity, here are a few examples.

. Percy shows creativity in his ideas to get to his mother desperately.

.  Although Harry was thought to be in danger from Sirius Black, he was creative in his plans to survive. This is astounding.

.  This wordless picture book is creative in the way it invites readers to explore a strange new world in the company of a migrant who must leave his family and everything he’s ever known to make the long and difficult journey to another land.

You might have noticed that I haven’t written the name of the book, I did it deliberately. I want you to write the name of all the books you think I was describing in the comment section.


Moving on the the main thing, what is CREATIVITY ? I wonder. Look below to find out!

Creativity is the use of imagination or original ideas to create something. Using your imagination is critical in some ways as you need to explore new things in life.


Thankyou very much for reading my blog and I hpe this blog inspires you to be CREATIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Books with Empathy

Published February 28, 2017 by Booklover999

We are doing a reading challenge at NGHS and one of the books you have to read is a book about Empathy, so here are some suggestions:

Harry Potter (Goblet of Fire)
The Lord Of The Rings

Books by Micheal Morpurgo , Cathy Cassidy,  Jaqueline Wilson,
Patrick Ness or  Niel Gaiman.

Books about animals.

Empathy is very important because it allows you to step into other people’s shoes.  To be honest, all books show empathy because you are looking through a character’s perspective when you read, but we thought these were a few that really showed this important quality.

You may have heard that Year 6 Book Club have started a reading challenge for Ks1 and Ks2. Ks2 will need a few books from the RECIPE values that we have been learning about recently. This blog post is to help you find books with Positivity from the P in RECIPE.  Here are some examples of books that show Positivity:   The Broken Heart Club by Cathy Cassidy Recommended for ages 9-11, this book is for mature readers. This book shows positivity because the five friends in the story have to stay positive between friendship breakups and fallouts. Especially at the end, they have to stay positive after a major tragedy…   Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl Recommended for ages 7-11 This book shows positivity because a boy called Charlie and his family have to stay positive through hard times. He also keeps being positive until something amazing happens…

The ‘Get Reading’ Challenge for KS2

Published February 28, 2017 by Cool Booklover

Hello, Readers!

Here is an small introduction to the “Get Reading” challenge for Key Stage 2.

This reading challenge is to get you to read books that are new to you and that show the RECIPE values – Resilience, Empathy, Creativity, Initiative, Positivity and Excellence.

We will create blog posts for each of these values, with suggestions for you to read in each category.   Don’t forget that you can choose your own books instead of those that have been suggested by us.

The “Get Reading” challenge will be announced in assembly on Wednesday and it will commence on Thursday, World Book Day.  When you dress up, you will be able to go in the library even if it’s not your library day because this is such a special day. You will receive a reading record to write down what books you have read.

We will be handing out the free books for World Book Day, too.

See you there!
